Produced by 59 - video designers for the Opening Ceremony - the video was directed by Aneil Karia and edited by 59's Joseph Pierce. It was shot by associate artist of 59 Productions, Vanessa Whyte. The countdown was one of a number of live-action sequences created by 59 shown during the ceremony on the big screens in the stadium and also sent direct to TV broadcast worldwide.
